It was painful having to watch the Kansas City Chiefs win another Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs have dominated the AFC West and many Chargers fans were left wondering what could have been if they didn't blow a 27-point lead against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Chargers matched up better against the Chiefs than the Jaguars and they had already played them twice. It is really hard to beat a team three times in one season and the Chargers could have shocked the world and ended KC's Super Bowl run in the Divisional Round. But they didn't.

Now Chargers fans just have to hold onto the small victories and one of those victories is the fact that Orlando Brown might be leaving the team this offseason. The franchise left tackle is a free agent this offseason and the Chiefs currently have a shade over $7 million in salary-cap space.

Kansas City could theoretically shave enough space to bring back Brown but with his high price tag, it likely will be the end of his tenure with the Chiefs. While it is great to see him out of the AFC West, it is still hard to get overly excited when it comes to a Chiefs departure.

Knowing the Chiefs, they will probably draft some insanely talented tackle that comes in and is better than Brown next season for a fraction of the cost. If they are unable to do that, though, then the Chargers will have a better chance of beating the Chiefs in their head-to-head matchups next year.
